Initiatives for Employees

Basic Approach

The Heiwa Real Estate Group endeavors to respect each employee's character, eliminate any and all discrimination and harassment, and ensure a safe and comfortable work environment. Through these efforts, the Group strives to realize a sense of latitude and abundance.

Protection of Employees' Human Rights

Heiwa Real Estate takes steps to create and maintain a safe and positive workplace environment in which the individuality and personality of each member is respected.

Prohibition of Discrimination

The Group prohibits discrimination based on particular beliefs, ideology, or religion, as well as any actions to solicit or coerce others based on particular beliefs, ideology, or religion, or any other actions or conduct that negatively affect the workplace environment.

Prohibition of Harassment

For Heiwa Real Estate, employees and officers are regarded as important partners in the execution of work duties. Accordingly, the Group prohibits sexual harassment, power harassment, or any other forms of harassment in recognition of its obligation to maintain orderly and cooperative relations in the workplace. It has also established official rules prohibiting sexual and power harassment in an effort to prevent workplace harassment.

Work-Life Balance

Heiwa Real Estate makes efforts to maintain a workplace environment in which each member's job is fulfilling and rewarding. The Group also supports the balanced compatibility of work and private life (work-life balance) by realizing various working-style options and making use of various plans for leave, and other programs. The Group strives to prepare a work environment that enables employees to dedicate their time to life events such as pregnancy, childbirth, childrearing or nursing care of family members.

Employee Healthcare Initiatives

In its effort to improve the health of individual employees, the Group has organized a Health Committee in cooperation with industry physicians and has held periodical opinion exchanges with them to promote health checkups, including regular health examinations and comprehensive medical examinations (for employees above a certain age). In addition, the Group supports employees who are affected by diseases such as cancer or suffer from mental issues by formulating support plans to enable the compatibility of their work and medical treatment in cooperation with industrial physicians and labor and social security attorneys, in order that such employees may work at ease within their capacity.
In 2017, Heiwa Real Estate was recognized as one of Japan's top 500 large companies in the Health and Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program, through which companies that make outstanding efforts in healthcare management are certified by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Nippon Kenko Kaigi (“Japan Health Conference”).
Meanwhile, in recognition of Heiwa Real Estate's efforts to facilitate and promote sports activities for its employees, the Japan Sports Agency certified the Group in 2018, and the Tokyo metropolitan government designated it as a corporation that promotes sports locally in the same year.

Opening of a Communication Lounge

At our head office (Nisshokan Bldg.) we opened a lounge that can be used for a variety of purposes, including breaks, lunch, internal meetings and regular business.
In line with the promotion of workstyle reforms, we will continue to promote the creation of workplace environments that make working easier.

Support for Off-work Activities

The Group facilitates the promotion of employee health and the vitalization of communication among employees by supporting activities for an internal baseball team and football team organized by enthusiasts.
